ABOVE IT ALL: Treating Riverside Residents with Co-Occurring Disorders and Dual Diagnosis
It is said that, “Addiction is the only prison where the locks are on the inside.” While non-addicts believe that breaking an addiction is as simple as deciding to quit the addictive behavior, individuals suffering from substance abuse and their counselors alike, know that addiction, whether, to drugs or alcohol, is one of the hardest diseases to break and impossible to cure. While the locks may be on the inside and the individual has total control and power over their addiction, if you are addicted to a substance, you know that breaking yourself from that prison seems impossible and futile. Escaping your personal prison becomes even more difficult if you are suffering with substance abuse and a mental health condition at the same time. Having two of these conditions at the same time is called dual-diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder”.
If you or a loved one is battling with addiction and have tried treatment, but have had relapses, you will be happy to know that there is help; so before you quit and throw in the towel, Above It All, is here for all Riverside residents.
Have you been diagnosed with or relates to someone who has a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders?
Dual diagnosis is the medical term used to describe someone suffering from both a mood disorder, such as bipolar disorder, anxiety, or depression, as well as an addiction, to either alcohol or illicit drugs. The sad truth is, many individuals suffering from a mental illness will often find themselves caught up with substance abuse and vice versa; many individuals caught up with substance abuse, will often experience mental illnesses, such as depression. While dual diagnosis is a recognized issue, most treatment programs aim at treating one symptom or another; they will either treat the addiction, while referring you to someone else for the mental disorder; or they will treat the disorder and send you on to an addiction treatment center.
However, at Above It All, we’ve designed the “cure”. We provide our clients with a dual diagnosis, treatment, tailored to help you recover from both conditions simultaneously.
Treating more than addiction
We understand that individuals suffering from a dual diagnosis experience a stronger addiction because both the mental disorder and the addiction correlates and leave you in a never ending cycle; requiring you to drink or use drugs because you are depressed and you are depressed because you continue to practice your addictive behavior.
Maybe this is your first time seeking treatment or maybe you or your loved one sought treatment in the past and relapsed. However, we are here to tell you, don’t get discouraged because there’s a strong possibility that only one of the ailments were treated and the other, you or your loved one, was left to battle and face alone.
